I need to update my post install task for installing the KBOX agent. The new 5.3 agent is native MSI, rather than exe as previous version.

The old command line is KInstallerSetup.exe -server=kbox.mycompany.local -ssl_enabled=0 -amp_ssl=0 -display_mode=silent -clone_prep=true

What is the new command line syntax needed for the MSI?

There are a couple different ways to do it, the easiest way is this:

msiexec /qn /i ampagent-5.3.XXXXX-x86.msi HOST=k1000.domain.local

Stuff like SSL and AMP SSL are auto-detected. Other command line methods are listed on page 303 of the 5.3 K1000 Admin Guide.

the importan one (kinda) is missing in that document. They changed "clone_prep" into CLONEPREP, so your msi commandline should have behind the HOST property CLONEPREP=true.

wow, DELL KACE Support told me I didn't need any command line switches. Scary. Wow.

Cloneprep is listed in this FAQ:

mlathrop, it depends on how they directed you to install the agent. You really wouldn't need any command line switches if you renamed the file with the host name in it (i.e. msiexec /qn /i ampagent-5.3.XXXXX-x86_K1000Name.msi), and you would only need cloneprep if you were about to install the agent, then capture the an image of the system. We generally recommend installing the agent after the OS deployment as a post installation task or via provisioning.

Another new twist.
This is a postinstall task to apply after a scripted OS install. We only do scripted OS installs.

If that's the case, you should be good using my initial suggestion. ;)
